Weather For The Rest Of Your Tuesday

High pressure located over the Minnesota/Iowa state line is continuing to pump colder and dry air down from Canada and over places that have a decent amount of snow cover into Central Alabama, keeping our temperatures well below normal for mid-March. Other than a few high and thin wispy clouds floating overhead, skies will be sunny. Temperatures will range from the lower 50s to near 60 degrees from north to south. Winds will be out of the northwest averaging less than 10 MPH. For this evening and throughout the overnight hours, clear skies and very cold temperatures can be expected as lows will dip down into the upper 20s to the mid-30s.

On This Day In Weather History
1993 – The Superstorm of 1993 (also called the Storm of the Century) was one of the most intense mid-latitude cyclones ever observed over the Eastern United States. The storm will be remembered for its tremendous snowfall totals from Alabama through Maine, high winds all along the East coast, extreme coastal flooding along the Florida west coast, incredibly low barometric pressures across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, and for the unseasonably cold air that followed behind the storm. In terms of human impact the Superstorm of 1993 was more significant than most landfalling hurricanes or tornado outbreaks and ranks among the deadliest and most costly weather events of the 20th century.
